Hong Kong - climate change canvas

    Newer Older

    Gukzik Lau,
    Hong Kong.

    “My canvas is called Hot City. As an urban resident, I knew very little about global warming and poverty in developing countries, until Oxfam took me to Gansu, in north-west China. There, I witnessed how the changing climate affects farmers and their way of life. As an artist – but, more importantly, as a person – I want to communicate with other people in Hong Kong and around the world about this crisis.”

    Artists from around the world have painted canvases illustrating the human impact of climate change in their countries. Sixteen of these canvases are being exhibited at the UN Climate Negotiations in Poznan, Poland, from December 1, 2008.
